25 dollars for a run of only 2000? Seems like a good deal, if it's your thing.

So, how big will this be?

Did we decide the Regults were really big in the end? Because if they are, it'll be a massive figure, right? Seems good value for $25.

I'ma go ahead and assume

I'ma go ahead and assume they're going to be on the "small" (canon) scale for Regults...regardless of what we decided! ;)

Ben, I'm going to buy a bunch and have you paint them up in dark DYRL colors!

They will probably be up soon at the usual suspects for Toynami stuff - Robotech.com, Entertainment Earth, BigBadToyStore etc..

YES. I will probably buy four of these... fantastic. These are the Macross toy people have been waiting for.

Yay!

Yay! I'm absolutely going to make certain to do a preorder on this thing! Way to go Toynami! (Hoping for future Invid/Inbits!)

I suspect there's going to be some ABS or PVC involved, looking at the leg joints.

Hope its got a snazzy box, too. Toynami's done a really nice job making packaging evocative of 80s Takatoku packages. Their vinyl Voltron box reminded me of the celuloid cubes Takatoku's Macross vinyl pieces were sold in.

Toynami - 1/100 Tactical Pod Regult

It will be approximately the same size as the Revoltech release. Come on Toynami give us a 1/72 version, too.

Actually, its alot larger

Actually, its alot larger than the Revoltech version. Keep in mind that a Zentaedi soldier can sit inside of one of these and pilot it, and that a Zentraedi soldier is roughly the same height as a Battroid/Battloid. So basically, picture a 1/100 valkyrie in Battroid mode fitting inside of the Battlepod.

TOYNAMI - ZENTRAEDI REGULT TACTICAL BATTLEPOD

I received my Regults (standard and heavy artillery versions)from the U.S.A. yesterday and you're right, Dan. They are quite big and very impressive! Can't wait for the light artillery version and the Glaug!

Size matters...

Dan - Have you seen it first-hand? I'm not questioning your accuracy, and I'd be even happier to know it'll be bigger than the Revoltech. We know what you're describing is the approximate scale layout it *should* have, but I'm just curious if you were able to look at the product's size relative to the 1/100 Toynami Valkyries first-hand at SDCC or where ever.

So I'm sayin' - it *should* be about big enough for a 1/100 Valk to pilot it, but did Toynami really get it that big? (That would be soooo nice.)

I did see the proto-type of the battlepod at the SDCC and it was approximately between 8-10" tall. That being said, its pretty big, considering the valks are right around 5 inches tall

I preordered 3 from BBTS...

I preordered 3 from BBTS... maybe I'll grab another one to paint DYRL down the line. I cannot believe there is no thread on MW for this yet... we finally get a new enemy mecha toy in one of the good scales, and not a peep. Maybe without anything negative to say, they didn't think it was worth a thread?

Die-Hard Fans

" I cannot believe there is no thread on MW for this yet... we finally get a new enemy mecha toy in one of the good scales, and not a peep. Maybe without anything negative to say, they didn't think it was worth a thread?"

Maybe they're disappointed that it's a Robotech toy from Toynami and not a Macross toy from Yamato. I understand the majority members @ MW.com are uh....do I dare say it?....die-hard Macross fans with a touch of elitist agression down their nerves...Sorry everyone, I mean...it's the truth. Just ask Veef.

Or maybe they're too busy arguing the hell out of Astro Plan, a Chinese Macross F/Gundam 00 knockoff show.

Maybe they're being silent about it & buying time for Yamato, Bandai, Kaiyodo(I'll believe it when I see it) to develop a Battle Pod with a cockpit that opens to put a Zentraedi in to play with.

I can't say for them since I'm being assumptive, but I can say for MYSELF that I'm one of those disappointed that there's no open hatch, no cockpit, & no giant enemy pilot to put in the Regult to fly it around the room & pose with it. That's the only negative thing that I can say about it.

The ONLY positive thing that I can say about this is that it's finally out there & everyone here's loving it. This could be sign for good things to come.

Hard not to be

excited, especially given the price and the lack of proper battle pod toys out there.
